Hello fellow Artist and Crafters, I’m pleased you could spare the time to visit my little corner of Blogsville!
I have recently finished this piece, after having such fun! It practically created itself! I used a well tried background, initially painted Bond-a -Web on a soft thick cotton, then overlaid it with distressed paper and dyed tissue.
beads added around the pieces; to blend them into the background.
Next, I wanted to add some whispy strips to represent sea-weed, these were embroidered, organza strips in varying shades, loosely attached to the surface.
I tried a gold frame, a distressed pastel frame, a black gloss frame….but no, I did’t stop there, I even tried patinating a silver one with alchohol inks, which I thought co-ordinated quite well – too well, though!
What a ridiculous situation! I can see myself staring across at this piece each morning – waiting for a Eurika! Moment.
I only hope it comes soon. Until then, I will have to be very bad mannered and totally ignore it!
Have you ever been in this sort of situation?
Please tell me I’m not alone
Bye for now and thanks for listening, I feel better already!
